The San Antonio Spurs are for real in case you haven't noticed. They knock off the Los Angeles Clippers in 4 games in the Western Conference Semi Finals. The Spurs have won 18 straight games, going back to the regular season. Whether you want to admit it or not, but the San Antonio Spurs have a legit shot at winning it all this year.
The Spurs are currently waiting to see who they will play in the Western Conference Finals between the Lakers and Thunder. To put things in perspective as to how the Spurs have been playing; they have won their last 18 games; They are 8-0 this post season; and they are 29-2 in their last 31 games. Its safe to say, they are the hottest team in basketball. Before the season began, no one gave the Spurs a chance to win the title, yet alone make it to the Western Conference Finals. Im not sure if sports fans remembered, but in the last NBA lockout season (1998-99)...the San Antonio Spurs won the NBA Championship.
No matter how you look at it, or what excuse you come up with...the Spurs are playing some serious basketbal right now. Im not even sure a young and energetic Thunder team can hang with these guys for an entire 7 games. In the mean time, San Antonio is the team to beat in the West until someone can at least win a game.
